Kirsty S's City Tips

  • If you enjoy your meal at small, family-run restaurants, it’ll be appreciated if you round up your bill and leave the change.
  • There is no public transport in Langkawi. The most convenient way of getting around is to rent a car or motorbike, although taxis are readily available in most places.
  • It’s not customary to tip in Malaysia, although the high levels of international tourism in Langkawi mean that some upscale restaurants often add a 10% service charge to the bill.

    Restoran Siti Fatimah
    Restaurants (Asian, Malaysian)
    Kirsty S Says:

    For a delicious and traditional Malaysian lunch, head to Siti Fatimah’s where the food is served buffet style. Choose from spicy salads, delicious curries, grilled fish, and stir-fries, as well as nasi lemak and other Malay favorites. This place packs a punch, offering rich, strong flavors and surprisingly low prices.

    There’s nothing particularly fancy about dining at Wonderland, but for tasty Chinese-Malay style seafood in a relaxed setting, it’s a real gem. Popular with the locals, it’s an informal, open-air place where the food is fresh, cheap, and delicious.
